    Hi, I have a dumb question… what is hummus? Like, what makes something hummus and not dip? I think I’ve been confusing hummus with haggis all this time…haha

      Rachel, that’s not a dumb question at all. Hummus is almost always made out of chickpeas, that’s kind of what makes it special. It’s a Mediterranean dip that can be eaten with pita chips, pretzels, various veggies.. it’s pretty endless. I’ve seen recipes for other hummus as well, like eggplant hummus, but they almost always are made from chickpeas. I’m not chickpea fan at all, honestly, I hate them, but I love my hummus recipe. The prep for hummus is different from other dips as well. You pretty much put everything into a food processor and you’re good to go. It has a pasty consistency, unlike a dip. It’s a lot thicker, but just as smooth. Sorry that was such a long answer to a short question lol And NO haggis is nowhere near the same thing lol So very, very different. I don’t think you’d like cooked and stuffed sheep intestines..
